Be Kind To One Another

Media, One Another'ing, Sermons | by Pastor Justin Keogh

One Another'ing

We continue our One Another’ing sermon series, which looks at the countercultural character of Jesus’ church, through the 50+ “one another” commandments. We are empowered by the gospel to love one another, to serve, to encourage, to forgive, to disciple, to pray, to show hospitality to one another, and much more. Today, we’ll look at Paul’s instruction to put off our old selves, and to put on Christ, which leads to kindness, tenderheartedness, and forgiveness.

Edifying Speech

Media, Sermons, The Living Word 2019 | by Pastor Justin Keogh

The Living Word 2019

Today is the third of five fall sermons in a series we are calling The Living Word, based on Hebrews 4:12, in which God’s Word is described as ”living and active.” His Word is alive and changes lives. To demonstrate this we asked five pastors, and leaders, to share a passage the Lord has been using in their lives to convict, comfort and/or challenge them. Our hope is to show the living nature of God’s word today and, in turn, be moved to study it, trust it, and immerse our lives in it. Today, Pastor Justin expounds on Paul’s instructions for our speech in Ephesians 4:29-30.

How the Gospel Changes Us

Media, Sermons, Transformed: How Jesus Changes Lives | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Transformed: How Jesus Changes Lives

We all know from our own lives and our experience of the world around us, that real, lasting change is elusive. “Transformed” is a 4-part series exploring the transforming power of God in our lives. Today, from Ephesians 4:20-24, we will build on last week’s promise of hope for real change, anchored in the the redeeming love of God in Jesus Christ, by looking at a process of gospel change based on Paul’s exhortations to “put off your old self” and “put on the new self”.

Raising Image Bearers: Practices

, Media, On Being Human, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Being Human

Today, we look at what it means to be human as we raise image bearers and some practical methods for doing so. Ephesians 4:32; Ephesians 5:2, 25; 2 Corinthians 8:7, 9; and Romans 15:7 pertain to concepts of godly parenting: to raise children who fear God and cultivate hearts that trust and love their King. Parenting is an overflow of the heart, and God must be our foundation, example, and goal as our children are formed through our influence on their life.

Loved Children of Light and Holy Saints

Ephesians, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Following the pattern of transformation laid out in Eph 4:22-24 (put off + be renewed + put on), in Eph 5:1-21 Paul moves on to additional marks of our new life in Christ by (again) appealing to who we now are in Him with three metaphors: “beloved children” (1-2), “saints” (3) and “children of light” (8).

Marks Of New Life In Christ

Ephesians, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


Because of what Jesus has done for us, our identity and future is secure in him, so we are free to put on truth, seek reconciliation, give generously, build-up and encourage, and freely forgive. As this happens, the world gets a taste of the way life should, and one day will be. This week Pastor Adam unpacks Ephesians 4:25-32.

Being Renewed In the Spirit of Your Minds

Unity of the Spirit

Ephesians, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


In the continuing series “Ephesians: The Living Church” Pastor Adam Sinnett has addressed what the church is about. One of the important issues is one of unity. What do you think of when you think of unity? Reading Ephesians 4:1-6 we first need to establish what our relationships are to one another, secondly how we are to respond.
